The Hit List is a lifestyle and travel website about discovering new experiences locally and globally. We’ll guide you to all the places you really need to know about. Our writers tell it like it is, like we are making recommendations to a close friend.  

What started as a few poorly written reviews and an extremely expensive pastime back in December 2013, is now receiving up to 53,000+ page views per month*. Our Australian readers live a hedonistic lifestyle, are 70% female, with majority aged between the age of 25-34 years old (59.37%)
